Cap­tur­ing an at­mos­phere of love and joy

Wangaratta Chronicle - North East Wedding Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

JEN from Jen­nifer Boote Photography loves wed­ding days.

“They are by far my fa­vorite work day” she said.

“The pace is usu­ally fairly fran­tic, but that’s fun too.

“I try to be at my most ob­vi­ous dur­ing the cre­ative por­traits and fam­ily por­trait ses­sion times of the day while the rest I try to be as in­vis­i­ble as pos­si­ble.

“My goal at any wed­ding is to cap­ture the mo­ments that can so eas­ily be over­looked, but when cap­tured, form a big part of the story of your wed­ding day.

My other goal is to cap­ture at least one hero shot.

“The one that you will be able to trea­sure for­ever.”

Jen is a nat­u­ral light pho­tog­ra­pher and will go hunt­ing for lo­ca­tions once she knows where you are get­ting mar­ried and where your re­cep­tion is.

“Af­ter chat­ting with you, I like to find a place that I be­lieve will match what you are look­ing for in your images and will help cre­ate mem­o­ries of the per­fect day for you,” she said.

“I’m very happy to ad­vise on what times are best for photography and what lo­ca­tions will work well, but ul­ti­mately I will work with what it is that you want and like.”

Some of the images she likes to cap­ture as an ex­am­ple, are - the shoes (his and hers), the flow­ers, the rings, the per­fume or that spe­cial item that has been handed down to the bride.

“All of those are im­por­tant to help you doc­u­ment the day, but you also need the mo­ments that hap­pen un­ex­pect­edly.

“The mo­ment when the bride takes a deep breath and walks down the aisle, the mo­ment the groom first spots his for­ever love.

“The mo­ment Dad’s hand leaves his daugh­ter’s and passes it on to her soon to be hus­band.

“The mo­ment that Mum cries as she watches her son or daugh­ter make the big­gest com­mit­ment of their life and the tears slip down her face.

“The mo­ment one of the flower girls gets a kiss from the page­boy.”

Jen has wed­ding packages that she of­fers, but finds that each cou­ple has their own dreams and plans and she likes to try and make her packages suit what each cou­ple want.

“Your wed­ding is first and fore­most about you and that is how I fo­cus my packages and my photography.”

She is also ex­tremely flex­i­ble with lo­ca­tions and hap­pily trav­els around the re­gion and, for that mat­ter, all over Vic­to­ria and be­yond.

“There are many beau­ti­ful re­cep­tion lo­ca­tions in our re­gion par­tic­u­larly, and this has in­spired me to put to­gether an on­line Bright/Mt Beauty Wed­ding Guide.”
